Erik Haula generated a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-2 win over Nashville.

He enjoyed a great night alongside Kyle Brodziak, who had a goal and an assist as well, and Justin Fontaine, who earned a helper. "Those guys deserve a ton of credit for the way they played the game," coach Mike Yeo said. "Those guys, every shift they were making a difference, every shift they were creating chances and doing things the right way. Solid at both ends of the ice. They didn't have easy match-ups either." Haula has recorded just 10 points in 54 games this year.

Erik Haula is projected to be scratched Tuesday.

"It's not about skating in open ice and it's not about skating fast in a straight line," coach Mike Yeo said. "It's about the compete level in the small areas, it's about being strong on the puck and puck strength and stick strength and D-zone coverage. These are the things that we need to see from him." Mikael Granlund is expected to return from injury and take his place. Haula has seven points in 41 contests this season.

Erik Haula will won't play Wednesday night against Columbus.

The speedy, gritty center certainly has the potential to be a steady producer, but he hasn't quite put it all together this season. Let someone else buy into the hype until this bud blooms. He has been scratched three times in the last four games.

Eric Haula, Nate Prosser, and Justin Fontaine will all be healthy scratches Tuesday night against the Flyers, as Stu Bickel tags in.

"Teams have been too comfortable coming in here lately," Yeo said of the Wild's bottom six forward corps. Forwards Haula and Fontaine were expected to make big improvements this season but have combined for just 13 points through 57 games. Prosser meanwhile has just four points himself. Simply put, if they're not scoring, they shouldn't be on your fantasy teams.
